MCFTA collage
Midland Center for the Arts is more than just a place.
It represents a vision.

ABOUT THE CENTER

Unique among the landscape of arts and cultural centers that exist in America, Midland Center for the Arts embraces the idea that you can create as well as appreciate. "The Center helps to satisfy the creative drives that exist in all of us," noted Alden B. Dow at the dedication of the Center building more than three decades ago.

At the time, The Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow Foundation became the lead donor ($4.1 million) in a $7.8 million campaign to build Midland Center for the Arts. They also set up a $2.5 million endowment fund. Today, the foundation continues to support the Center and its programs. The Midland Center for the Arts building was designed by Alden Dow to promote the relationship between art and science. Visit the Herbert H. Dow Foundation web site at: www.hhdowfdn.org.

In keeping with the original vision, Midland Center for the Arts represents community-based programs, professional programs, presentations and tours, exhibits, lectures, fairs, and films that focus on the arts, humanities and science through the innovative offerings and exciting work of our diverse resident groups:

- MATRIX:MIDLAND Festival
- Music Society
- Midland Symphony Orchestra
- Theatre Guild
- Alden B. Dow Museum of Science and Art
- Midland County Historical Society


Through their offerings, we are home for nearly 2,000 volunteers and tens of thousands of visitors from across mid-Michigan every year.

To fully experience Midland Center for the Arts, your active participation as an artist and audience member is encouraged. Attend a performance, view an exhibit, participate in a class, audition for a show, volunteer. We urge you to become part of our mission and to discover the many opportunities available.
